Your Stars Today
Aries | March 20 – April 18
Usually you aren’t bothered about having fundamental differences with others, at work, at home or even amongst friends. Yet you’re aware that in one particular situation, tensions are building. Let them. Within days a series of events will arise that will force everybody to tackle these, and jointly.
Taurus | April 19 – May 19
You’ve no problem taking a tough line when necessary, especially when others are being unfair or unkind. But there’s one particular individual who’s able to do almost anything, especially in situations involving you. Fortunately, their antics and the things they get up to are as charming as they are annoying.
Gemini | May 20 – June 20
The last thing you’re in a mood for are unnecessary dramas. While you can sidestep these for now, right away or later the issues in question need to be raised and discussed, ideally heart to heart. Tackle them soon or wait until early December’s emotionally intense Gemini Full Moon forces them out.
Cancer | June 21 – July 21
Not only is planning ahead a virtue, it can provide a sense of stability during unsettling periods. Tempting as it is to resort to this way of relieving certain anxieties, judging by the positive influence of the link between Saturn and Uranus, in a few days’ time, the more flexible arrangements are, the better.
Leo | July 22 – August 21
It’s not uncommon for you to complain about having to deal with everything yourself. Actually, that’s because you can be so demanding that others find it easier to leave certain matters to you. Now that the tables are turned, and somebody else is being fussy, you’ll learn how it feels.
Virgo | August 22 – September 21
Before making even simple decisions, you’ll gather facts and think things through. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that ideas beyond anything you’d have conceived of will be triggered by your ruler Mercury’s link with creative Uranus, on the 25th. What you learn and the insights you gain make this worth waiting for.
Libra | September 22 – October 22
While, obviously, you’ll be tactful, you’re wondering if you should point out to certain individuals why they’re mistaken about certain strongly held views. Think twice. This isn’t about who’s right or wrong as much as whether they’ll benefit from your advice. They’re probably better off learning this for themselves.
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
Tempting as it is to say a firm ‘no’ to ideas or offers that would be unsettling, they’re actually in your best interests. The world around you and your life are in a state of flux. While this is worrying at the moment, the more involved in these you become, the more excited you’ll be.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 20
The recent move by your ruler Jupiter into the most strategic portion of your chart began a cycle of questioning. Much of what you’re asking involves matters you’ve never really thought about and which, because of that, mean you’ll be forced to slow down and adopt a more measured pace.
Capricorn | December 21 – January 18
Generally, you’d no problem taking a stance with those who simply aren’t doing what they said they would or who assume you won’t notice if they don’t make much effort. However, you’re rightly concerned that directly challenging them would be upsetting. Take it slowly and be gentle. You’ll be glad you did.
Aquarius | January 19 – February 17
If you’re feeling oddly uncertain, if not emotional, about some of the changes currently streaming through your life, it’s no surprise. While there’s no arguing these are progress, as you move ahead you must inevitably leave elements of the past behind. While you’ll battle this, you’ve no choice. It is, in fact, essential.
Pisces | February 18 – March 19
Certain individuals can be quite aggressive when they’re in a bad mood, something you’ve always dreaded. This is understandable, mostly because defending yourself is nearly impossible. But the fact is, you needn’t deal with them at all. Simply say that you see they’re distracted and will wait until their mood’s improved.
